    Support and Professionalism at its Best!
    Mr. Jarrett McCormack is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. I have nothing but the best to say for this man. Don't be fooled by his young appearance; this man knows what he's doing! I was facing a Class 1 Misdemeanor charge for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. A maximum sentence of 1 year imprisonment and a $2500 fine. It was a long and rough road for me and I almost lost everything. Mr. McCormack had my back from day 1 when I stepped into his office. He gave me assurance, support, and knew the correct approach for me to take. He gave me a step-by-step guideline to follow to ensure the BEST outcome for my case. Everything discussed between Jarrett and I was strictly confidential which presented me a sound mind. If for whatever reason my attorney was not available by phone or e-mail, he always replied to my questions and concerns PROMPTLY. As pleasing as it is to receive prompt replies, I was more impressed to receive updates on any new information either from him or that the opposing party may have. Jarrett's pricing is standard. Fixed fees. My advice: If you're reading reviews to see how pricing is -- I'll put it to you this way: You get what you pay for. The pricing is a normal, standard, fixed fee and it is reasonable. Mr. McCormack saved me. He pulled all the strings! He got me everything I needed, told me everything I needed to do; was always very organized and prepared in court (no missing documents), had a great argument and what's the best thing about it all? After all the stressed I endured trying to figure out whether I was going to be incarcerated or not, Mr. McCormack kept me out of jail. After it was all said and done, the judge sentenced me to 12-Months ALL SUSPENDED! I was shaking! I couldn't feel a thing! I was numb! Surely, I thought I was done. But thanks to an amazing lawyer by my side, I was able to walk out of there a (semi) free man! HEY! It's better than being behind bars! The court room was shocked, and the people pressing charges against me weren't too happy either (to say the least), but justice got served that day IN MY FAVOR! If you're in trouble then you NEED legal counsel. I highly recommend Jarrett McCormack. He will not only represent you, but he will guide you through the right steps to ensure a good outcome. Are you military? No problem. His father represents all active duty and reserve. Call McCormack & McCormack today. They won't let you down.

    Outstanding.
    It is the one word that comes to mind when I think of Mr. McCormack and his team of professionals. Mr. McCormack went out of his way to cover every base possible for a trial that literally left us weak in the knees based on the allegations, charges and potential reality of jail time. Although we never met prior to the trial, Mr. McCormack became part of our family and went into court as if he was fighting for one of his own. His tactical approach proved to be invaluable beyond measure. This man poured his all into the case and helped us navigate the sometimes confusing aspects of the judicial system. When you are facing a serious charge that could end up with life in prison, you want the very best standing in your corner...and that IS without question Mr. McCormack and his team. Not only did they prepare us before court but we were always kept in the loop with what the next phase of the case would be. The entire team especially Theresa was ALWAYS readily available to answer calls and emails no matter what the question. Preparation is such a critical component to any case and boy-oh-boy was the Law Office of McCormack & McCormack prepared. They proved that if you fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Mr. McCormack and the entire team danced circles around the prosecution because McCormack & McCormack was prepared for every and any turn in the case (and we had quite a few). In the end Mr. McCormack's experience and expertise of the court system proved invaluable. Not only was he able to get the most serious charges dropped but his diligence and determination resulted in the remaining charges came back with a NOT guilty verdict. I cannot speak enough about this incredible man and his team of professionals who went "out" on a limb "standing" firm in the face of the most difficult time that our family has ever experienced. Simply put, McCormack & McCormack = Outstanding! I had to write this letter about this law firm especially to anyone out there who may be on the fence or undecided about an attorney to go with. I hope this letter about our experience strikes a chord and helps you make the decision that Mr. McCormack and his team is without a question the way to go...if you want to WIN! Thank you beyond words for all you have done to help us walk out of court with a clean slate and a fresh new beginning. Nothing compares to having a powerful team on your side and from the bottom of our hearts Mr. McCormack we truly appreciate you, Theresa and the entire team who helped to prepare this case.

    Dear Jarrett McCormack and Staff,
    When all of this first started, I was scared, sad, hopeless, and ready to give up. I thought the mistake I made was going to ruin my life and career. Because of your knowledge, expertise, and compassion, I was able to get through this difficult experience with the best possible outcome. I want to thank you all for your time, hard work, and care you show your clients. I did not feel alone throughout this process; instead I felt assured and taken care of. Never once did I feel judged, I always felt in good hands. I am so relieved now that this is being resolved. I learned a serious lesson. I thank you from the bottom of my heart; I could never have gotten through this without you! Jarrett, you are a great lawyer and this is a great firm. I would absolutely and confidently recommend you to anyone in need. Thanks again!

    We were calmed by the confidence we had in you
    Mr. McCormack: It proves to be a difficult task, to thank you sufficiently for your efforts on behalf of our son. He faced rather severe, life changing penalties for the alleged charges. Needless to say, his mother and I were quickly reaching the edge of our wits, and nearly paralyzed by the strain of the ordeal. And yet, we were calmed by the confidence we had in you. Your preparation was thorough, you talked us through each process of the case; you spent time preparing our son for the challenge, and your staff was most understanding in the execution of their duties. Your defensive strategy was well executed: presenting your case, challenging the prosecutions' allegation and evidence; dismantling it, with deliberate persistence, and with a clear command of all the elements at your disposal in the practice of jurisprudence. It was nothing short of masterful. The not guilty verdict, not only exonerated our son, but it also qualified our choice, to have you serve as our attorney. On this point, our family again offers our gratitude and all the best for your continued success.

    Thanks again Greg, Theresa and Kat for all your hard work
    We first met you early this year from the start of the most horrific situation our family ever had to endure. Everyone knows that their life can turn in a blink of an eye, but you never think it's going to happen to you, well it did. My son didn't know where to turn or what to do, and then by chance he found you on the internet. He read your credentials and decided to take a chance on you. My son told us he found an attorney who he instantly felt he could trust, my son put his life in your hands. When my husband and I met you we felt the same way, we entrusted you with our son's life, and that is something we never thought we would do, but you made us trust you, you made us believe in you and thus our journey began. Earlier this year my son was facing a possible indictment for various counts of CP. Needless to say our family was sick over this, we didn't have a clue as to what was happening. You took the time to explain everything to us. Greg you always made yourself available to us, you would answer my emails as early as 5:00 AM or as late as Midnight. Your phone calls came day and night whenever need be. No matter how many questions we had or how many phone calls we made to you, you were always there ready with answers and explanations. Not only were you there when we needed help also Theresa and Kat. I have to say as a mother those two women were priceless to me. I must have called each of them a relentless amount of times, and never once were they annoyed or short with me. Each conversation was handled with the utmost of care, and I can't thank them enough. Due to your tenacious efforts you were able to negotiate a deal with the prosecution for a plea bargain of one count of possession that could have a sentence with a possible guideline range of 8-10 yrs. However, Greg you were able to utilize the most recent reports and research available to demonstrate that the sentencing guidelines were completely outdated and too severe for my son's particular case. In addition to this you told us what we needed to do, and that was to get a character history package including letters, and all sorts of things about my son's life, and with help of your diligent team of paralegals (Theresa and Kat) who spent countless hours assembling this package for my son that helped demonstrate that the prescribed guidelines were too severe and warranted departure. Greg with your combined efforts of knowledge, experience, hard work and your excellent team, my son received a sentence of 60 months, with the opportunity to participate in programs that will reduce the time of his sentence further. Greg besides your incredible work ethics, you are man of great respect. Not only were you there as a lawyer, we also felt you were there as a friend. What I admired most about you was how you treated my son. You didn't treat him like a felon, you had respect for him, you treated him like a respectable man who needed your help. Whether he was sitting in your office or behind a Plexiglas divider in the county jail you treated him with the utmost respect and that is something we will never forget. Thanks again Greg, Theresa and Kat for all your hard work without it we would have never gotten through this horrific time, your help has made it easier for us to get through this. We have reach rock bottom, and the only way to go now is up, and I know we are going to make it.

    The outcome, with your help, was much better than what could have been.
    Saying "Thank You" does not even begin to accurately convey our gratitude to you for your help in my son's time of need for legal representation. Before contacting you, we had an attorney who was not returning calls, was not answering our questions, and was not informing us of...quite frankly...anything. After weeks of the above frustration and fear of the unknown, I woke up one morning with this deep gut feeling that as the mom of a son in need, knew I HAD to do something for my son. As it turned out, "that something" was to find YOU. Upon calling, I was surprised to immediately be connected to you personally. Briefly, I informed you of my son's situation. With not a second of hesitation, you asked how quickly could my son get there. He was able to meet with you within 2 hours of my call. I'll fast forward here just by one day and state that had we not found you and had you not immediately jumped into action, my son would have been indicted within days! You stopped that from happening and saved him from what would have been the worst of the worst. We shudder to even think.... After the initial private consultation and while he was still in your office, you contacted me, with my son in full agreement. With what I will call brute honesty, you explained the seriousness of his situation. I was terrified for him. You said that my son was visibly shaken. I probably only digested about 20% of your words that day, but yet felt certain that he made the right decision in wanting you to represent him. Our feeling of certainty couldn't have been more accurate. My son is a young adult, "Adult" being the key word here. I realize that you did not have to take that huge extra step to suggest a conference call with me that day, but you did. May I add here that it was not because I was the one paying your fee. My son had already informed you that he would be the one responsible for that. Expensive? Yes. Worth every penny? Definitely...Yes. Your expertise, years of experience, knowledge, endless and tireless efforts were truly invaluable. Greg, how on earth do I say thank you for helping my son? How do I express how grateful I am for including me in the process? Yes, my son was in full agreement of me being included and informed, but I know your encouragement to guide him in that direction meant that you were willing to give much more of your time, effort and energy than you would have had to. I did not give this tons of thought at the time, but I most certainly have since. In the first few hours after the initial consultation, you not only swiftly moved into action with your legal expertise, but your wisdom shined through as well. In my opinion, you knew that my son needed love and support, as anyone would, when facing such troubles. Being informed, gave my son and me a precious and priceless gift. The gift of he and I being able to talk about it all openly with one another so that I could give him the emotional support he so needed. It gave him a chance to prepare with me by his side. It gave him the needed boost to stay strong and not feel alone in it all. From the bottom of my heart Greg - I thank you. To any potential client, any parents or loved ones who may read my letter and are considering a call the office of Greg McCormack..I would say do not hesitate. Call now! After your call, appreciate the brute honesty in the way you are given information. Above all, know that you or your loved one is in the best of hands in legal representation from Greg and his talented, ambitious team. Jarrett, you also were wonderful in assisting with my sons case. My son not only benefited from your legal expertise, but he easily connected with you ...maybe..being somewhat due to being closer to his age (sorry Greg). The benefit that came with feeling such a connection was very important to my son. You met with him and visited him on numerous occasions, helping him tremendously. To Theresa, your efforts and knowledge were also invaluable. You were able to answer so many of our questions and took the time to do so. Everyone's knowledge and efforts, without a doubt, contributed to the best possible outcome in my sons case. Greg is fortunate to have such a wonderful team which made us very fortunate as well. After successfully getting my son past an indictment from happening, your negotiations with the prosecutor began. Again some success. The guidelines for this offense are more harsh than for those who have committed a far worse offense. I can only say that facing what it is, your experience and knowledge in representing one being charged with this offense was outstanding. I was impressed with your credentials which I read on your website before I first called you early that morning. Once we witnessed your knowledge and swiftness in all your actions, we felt some of the weight lifted from our shoulders. Every question was answered, every process and guideline explained. With every step taken, you immediately informed us and then went on to explain what the next steps would be. It was evident you had a great reputation and are well respected and trusted by those on both sides of the fence within the legal circle. Unfortunately, there was not much choice but to enter a plea. Sadly, the outcome could have been much worse had he not. You explained it all to us thoroughly. You and Jarret gave us hours of your time that day in your conference room. You did not hurry us in the process of this important meeting. It was clear that your intention was to answer any and all of our questions and for my son to be fully informed in this decision and it's process. On a personal note, I remember when you momentarily stepped away and valiently came back into the room with a box of tissues for me and a supportive hand laid on my sons shoulder. I wish I could write with all the correct legal terminology in all the right places. I have though, written with the utmost sincerity, which I hope conveys to you, and others who may read it, that we know we could not have made a better choice than you to represent my son. Your expertise, vast knowledge, years of experience, extremely knowledgeable staff, along with your your endless energy and efforts.....you ultimately helped my son receive a better than expected outcome. Back to my mention of your brute honesty for a moment. Although it was not easily accepted at times, I am sure it was the only way, the best way to be given the information you had to deliver. You knew that. It did not go un-noticed the care and compassion we were also given. Before walking into court on the day he entered his plea, you squeezed my hand. You understood the fear I felt for my son that day. I closely watched as you stood in front of my son, reached out and straightened his tie, squeezed his shoulders and looked into his eyes...with compassion in yours. Even with the sound of what seemed like a freight train in my head, I listened to your words of advice as I had complete faith in you. Although most times it was through tear filled eyes, I don't believe I missed much of anything when it came to seeing how you helped and fought for my son. The outcome, with your help, was much better than what could have been. I will never forget Greg, and will be forever grateful.

    Thanks to you and your team for everything.
    Dear Mr. McCormack, When I contacted you several months ago to inquire about your services, you were the only person that took the time to explain what my husband and I would be facing over the next few months. We were stressed and scared about our unknown future. You were straight forward and very helpful. My questions were always answered promptly and adequately. You and your team constantly exceeded my expectations. I never thought the outcome of my husband's trial would have turned out as well as it did. Because of your knowledge, your strategy, and your team's helpfulness, my husband and I are together. We will never forget what you did for us. Thanks to you and your team for everything.

    I can’t thank you both enough for the quality of work you do.
    Dear Greg & Melody, I hope your start to 2012 is as hopeful and optimistic as mine. I certainly would not be as excited about the New Year if it weren’t for your exceptional legal skills and devotion to my case. I was beyond impressed with the personal attention that you both, as my attorney and paralegal, gave to me during this most difficult period in my life. I have never seen such a combination of professional and personal attributes in anyone I’ve ever done business with. Today’s day and age of fast paced modernism has brought about so many changes that it is very nice, and rare, to see a professional who genuinely cares for the welfare of his client. I knew from the initial consultation that I had found the right legal team. My life was shattered by the events that brought me to your office only 7 months ago. I had been to a couple of consultations before I met with you. I remember being extremely impressed ( and surprised ) to receive your call at 7:30 pm after, literally, 30 minutes from submitting a referral request on your website. I am even more impressed now that I know how busy you are. A first impression is a lasting one and this told me a lot about your concern to help my situation and the dedication you have to your practice. I was extremely impressed by the knowledge of both the civilian and military legal systems you showed me during our initial consultation. They are very different, and your knowledge of how they intertwine and affect each other is a priceless attribute that makes you and your team an invaluable asset to have on your side. I remember the advice other attorneys gave me before consulting with you and it still makes me shudder; had I listened and retained their services, their lack of knowledge of how both legal systems work together would have surely resulted in a poor outcome as I look back on how you handled my case. I was very nervous on my day in court, but I appreciated your candor in explaining every possible outcome and what our game plan was. I felt like I knew exactly what to expect. I remember seeing some weak attorneys that day who were visibly intimidated by our very strict judge. Your representation met my every expectation in court. Your aggressiveness and knowledge of the law in front of the judge was directly responsible for having my case dismissed. I dealt with Melody as my paralegal many times during the months leading up to my case. I was extremely impressed with her attention to detail and quality of work. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with. My record is completely clear thanks to your efforts, hard work, and dedication to both my case and the spirit of the law. I can’t thank you both enough for the quality of work you do. I hope you both have a wonderful 2012 Greg and Melody!

    I cannot express in just a letter my thanks for everything you've done for me.
    Dear Jarrett, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the service and defense you, as well as your staff, provided for me. Prior to finding your firm I went through so many different attorneys that did nothing but try to push me through their system the way they saw fit, with no regard to my personal feelings and situation. The first day I met with you and your staff you all made me feel completely welcome, comfortable, and assured me that I was in good hands. Your employee's talked with me as often as I needed and always answered every question I had from the start until after the process was complete. As for the defense in trial, I could not have asked for a better attorney. You went into it with the knowledge and trust that I was innocent and did everything and more to prove that fact. During the duration of the last few months, the stress of worrying about jail time for crimes I didn't commit was overwhelming, but your words and advice alleviated most, if not all of it. I cannot express in just a letter my thanks for everything you've done for me. Please continue doing what you’re doing.

    I thank you and Teresa for the bottom of my heart.
    Mr. McCormack, I will first like to thank God then you! You are indeed the best at what you do. You and your team (Ms. Teresa) from day one have given me professional, first class service that has been worth every penny. I thank you and Teresa for the bottom of my heart. PS. I'm so glad I did not go with the military counsel as a primary.

    You have given us our life back
    It would be so easy just to go out and buy a pre-printed "Thank You" card and sign our names to say thank you for what you have done for us. But a card has never been written that can tell you how much we appreciate the hard work and dedication you have shown in these past months. This has been the hardest and most stressful time of our entire lives. When we didn't know which way to turn to seek legal help, Beth found you. You and your staff have been there every step of the way to answer any and all questions that we've had. You have shown us both compassion and understanding during this ordeal. Your dedication has gone far beyond what we ever expected. There were times that you responded to questions in e-mail that were sent late at night and sometimes early in the morning. When something unexpected came up, you reacted immediately and always in our best interest. You seemed tireless in your efforts. At times it felt as though we were the only clients that you were working with. There was never a moment that we didn't have total and complete trust in your advice and counsel. You always explained to us in great detail what was going on and what the possible outcome could be. Never once did you make a promise as to what would happen in the end. We sincerely appreciate your honesty and sincerity no matter how difficult it was to hear. The final outcome was far beyond what I had prayed for and better than I believe even you expected. You have given us our life back and we plan to fade into a normal life as before. As I said, there is no card that can express the total extent of our gratitude and sincerest thanks. With that in mind, may I just close by saying thank you.

    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
    Dear Greg, In June 2009, my husband and I were celebrating life. Our youngest son just celebrated his first birthday; our oldest son was gearing up for first grade. I had just began a second career with the deaf, Cliff was excited about his upcoming deployment with the United States Navy, and we were about to buy land in the country to build a home. We were living out the American dream, and thanking God for His blessings. Then, suddenly, our world came crashing down with one phone call, one meeting, a handful of mistakes made by others, and plenty of tears. After fifteen years of dedicated military service, Cliff was looking at being forcibly discharged, through no fault of his own, leaving him and our family enveloped in panic and unsure of the future. We began searching for civilian representation the same day. We were not having much luck talking with anyone, as it was past business hours on a Friday. After locating your information through your web site, Cliff and I thought we would at least leave a message after feeling inspired by your client's testimonials. As we sat on the front porch overwhelmed with worry, our tension was broken up by the telephone ringing. Within hours of learning about our unfortunate predicament, you called and immediately starting setting our minds at ease. You discussed your experience and took time to address many of our concerns. Your knowledge of military law and your expedited response placed us in your office within days. Thus began our year long journey with you, Greg, and you provided our family not only with legal expertise but also emotional support throughout a difficult year. You and your staff were always available and enabled us to overcome every barrier that was set in our way. Your passion and confidence bled through to us, and with every passing day we found comfort through your legal counsel and professional advice. In June 2010 our well-traveled road became one paved with hope, praise, and joyous tears when Cliff was found without fault, retained in service, and promoted to Lieutenant. Now, thanks to your diligence, persistence, and devotion to innocence, my husband is looking forward to his future assignments with the military. Due to your vast knowledge, and if it is God’s will, Cliff will breathe the salty air and sail the seas until he retires. Everyone must remember that bad things happen to good people. God allows us to experience the trials and tribulations of this earth in order to grow and become closer to Him. In our case, not only is that true, but it seems He also blessed us with a guardian angel. Thank you, Greg. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

    McCormack complimented by judge
    A senior Air Force enlisted member came to our office for a second opinion after he had signed a plea agreement with a different attorney to plead Guilty to a Federal charge of Distribution of Child Pornography. After reviewing the facts with him, and advising as to our thoughts on the case, he decided to terminate his other attorney and retained our firm. Mr. McCormack was then able to renegotiate the plea agreement with the US Attorney’s office, getting the prosecutor to reduce the charge from Distribution to Receipt. As the prosecutor discussed with Mr. McCormack during this process, she was extremely reluctant to reduce the charge, since she had already taken a position on the case and made a plea agreement with the prior attorney for Distribution. Once Mr. McCormack had secured the Receipt plea agreement, it was time to focus on sentencing – our client was facing many years in prison with a statutory minimum of 5 years, a statutory maximum of 20 years and Sentencing Guidelines that provided for a sentencing range of 210-262 months of confinement. To secure a sentence below the Guidelines, Mr. McCormack’s office staff prepared an extensive sentencing package consisting of background, family and career information as well as numerous character letters for presentation to the judge. At the sentencing hearing, the prosecutor requested a sentence within the Sentencing Guideline range (210 months up to the statutory max of 20 years). Mr. McCormack argued at length that the Sentencing Guidelines were excessive in all respects, that even the minimum guideline of 210 months (17.5 years) was ludicrous for this offense of receipt of child pornography and that the statutory minimum of 5 years would be an appropriate sentence in this case. The judge imposed a sentence of 5 years and 10 months. After imposing the sentence and recessing the court, the judge came off the bench to shake Mr. McCormack’s hand and complimented him on the outstanding sentencing package that he had presented to the court for our client.
